As it turns out, dogs are much more than a man’s best friend – they are Mother Nature’s as well.
More commonly known is the role dogs can play on police forces but their capabilities as protectors and investigators has also proven incredibly valuable when it comes to protecting endangered species and ecosystems. Whether it is protecting penguins; hunting down poachers; chasing away large cats (i.e. cheetahs) to protect both the cat and livestock; tracking evidence of endangered species; and/or sniffing out scat for scientist, we have a lot to thank these four-legged creatures for!
